Organizing the Pantry

I have a big pantry, but obviously it's not big enough. It has open shelving and since I have major OCD it drives me insane! Does anyone have any tips to make it both more functional and more aesthetically pleasing?


My shelves are really deep, and so there is stuff just piled behind more stuff. It is not very functional.

I purchased metal closet shelf dividers. Tomato items in a section, baking things, veggies, fruit, etc. I love it. Easy to find items even tho the shelves are deep, and also easy to take inventory for a store list.

By open shelving do you mean wire shelves? I hate them. Things fall through. I lined mine with contact paper.

Purchase some plastic lazy susans at Wal-Mart or $ store. That should help.

Divide the shelves into sections. The hardware stores sell drawers that pullout for shelves. Or construct your own.
